The Division 2 PC graphics performance: Palit GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Storm X (4GB)
Despite not being as powerful as the GTX 970, Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1050 Ti still puts up a pretty good fight here at lower resolutions. In truth, I’ve only been able to test the 4GB version of this card, so those with 2GB models may find themselves struggling a bit. After all, Ubisoft say 2GB cards are really only fit for 30fps at 1920×1080, so you’ll likely have to employ the tips on the first page of my The Division 2: How to get the best PC settings guide in order to bump up the frame rate a bit.
Still, it’s possible that 4GB GTX 1050 Ti owners may well get much better speeds than those I’ve listed here, as Palit’s Storm X version is actually a touch slower than a lot of its competitors. With a base and boost clock speed of 1290MHz and 1392MHz, this is probably the baseline experience you can expect from a GTX 1050 Ti, as faster cards may well be able to push these frame rates a touch higher.
Can I play this at 1920×1080?
Absolutely. I found the GTX 1050 Ti was most comfortable on Medium settings here, producing an average frame rate of 51fps, but you could probably get away with 40fps on High if you really felt like it. Meanwhile, those after the very fastest frame rates will be happy to know that Low will crank it all the way up to an average of 93fps.
Can I play this at 2560×1440?
Just about, but you’ll have to stick to Low to get a smooth average of 60fps. Medium can be done here, but you’ll likely have to employ the settings tweaks on page one to bump its default average frame rate of 33fps to something a bit more stable if you’re really going to play at this quality setting at this resolution.
Can I play this at 4K?
Haha, nice try, but even Low will only net you an average of 31fps. I mean, it’s doable, but why subject yourself to it when you’ll get better performance at lower resolutions?
